The woman I desire to be…a Proverbs 31 woman

 2015-01-18 14.47.06Proverbs 31: 25-26

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”

I remember sitting down one day and wondering where my life was going. I felt like my life was at a stand-still, I felt like I was not utilizing my skills and knowledge on a daily basis, and I was unsure of where to go next. I then came across this scripture and remembered that I have nothing to worry about. I can live my life worry free of what the future holds for me because I am a Proverbs 31 woman. God has clothed me with strength and dignity, he has provided me favor with my superiors, and he has provided me with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. When we speak, we need to speak with wisdom and kindness.  There comes a time when we are spoken to poorly. Whether it comes from a customer or patient at work, or comes from a friend or family member. Remember to stay kind, it’s easy to fight back with words, but it takes wisdom to hold back and remain kind to the person that has wronged you. I will admit, I have fallen short of this advice several times.

Many times, people look to famous actors or musicians and desire to be like them. They are imperfect, so why do we desire this? This scripture illustrates what we should desire to be, and that is a Proverbs 31 woman. God has shared this scripture with me today to share with others.  Some may have heard it before, some may be hearing it for the first time. For whatever reason it may be, God put it in my heart to share. I pray that it speaks to you. God bless.
